Tenerife Carnival Dates for 2021

Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2021 Carnival Poster

Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival

This year virtual carnival events take place between 17 February and 7 March, culminating in a television gala, ‘Santa Cruz, Corazón del Carnaval’ (Santa Cruz, Heart of Carnival). 

UPDATE #2 08/10/2020: Santa Cruz suspends Carnival 2021

There will be no Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2021, although the City Council is working with the Carnival groups in the design of some activities that can maintain the spirit of the festivities during the weeks in which it should have been celebrated. 

The dates that Carnival 2021 should have been celebrated: Inauguration on Fri 15 Jan 2021. Contests would then have taken place from the following Thu 21 Jan 2021, until their climax with the Election of the Carnival Queen on Wed 10 Feb 2021. Carnival would have then taken to the streets with the Opening Parade on Fri 12 Feb 2021, with the Main Parade on Shrove Tuesday 16 Feb 2021, culminating on Sun 21 Feb 2021

UPDATE 08/10/2020: In the current conditions of development of the pandemic, it is impossible to set a date for the celebration of Carnival 2021. The current situation means there is still no news on choosing a date for carnival next year, which they had hoped to have decided and announced in September and, instead it is looking very much like IF, rather than when, Carnival 2021 can go ahead

UPDATE 23/07/2020: Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife has been postponed to the second quarter of 2021 because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The city council will choose the final date in September 2020 and in consensus with the carnival groups. Three options are currently being considered: April, May or July 2021. New dates will be listed here.

Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival 2021 will take to the streets between Friday, 12 February 2021 and Sunday, 21 February 2021.  The main events will likely be:

  • Wednesday 10 February 2021 - Election of the Carnival Queen
  • Friday 12 February 2021 - Carnival Opening Parade
  • Tuesday 16 February 2021 - Carnival Main Parade
  • Wednesday 17 February 2021 - Burial of the Sardine
  • Saturday 20 February 2021 - Daytime Carnival 
  • Sunday 21 February 2021 - Parade of Vintage Cars






Puerto de la Cruz Carnival

  • Thursday 11 February 2021 - Election of the Carnival Queen
  • Saturday 13 February 2021 - Proclamatory Parade
  • Wednesday 17 February 2021 - Burial of the Sardine
  • Friday 19 February 2021 - Men´s Marathon in High Heels
  • Saturday 20 February 2021 - Main Parade
Puerto de la Cruz Carnival is also being celebrated online this year.

Los Gigantes Carnival

The start of carnival in Los Gigantes is usually on the Friday ten days after Shrove Tuesday. Therefore, using the any year schedule for Los Gigantes carnival, we calculate that their carnival should start on Friday 26 February 2021, with their main parade being held on Sunday 28 February 2021, but will update if we get any further information.

Los Cristianos Carnival

As ever, we won't even guess when Los Cristianos carnival will be held in 2021. We will update if or when any information becomes available from the authorities in Arona. 
  
If you wish to be informed when information about Los Cristianos Carnival 2021 becomes available, may I suggest that you subscribe to our email updates, or our news feedfollow our Facebook page, or our Twitter tweets, or all of them, or whichever is your preference, as whatever I post here will also be posted to all of those social media.
